Production to Continue Through
Four Performances at
League Theatre.
Miss Bauersmith And Allen Cast
in Leading Roles for Fourth
Repertory Presentation.
"The Guardsman" by Ferenc Mol-
nar wil open at 8:15 o'clock tonight
in the Lydia Mendelssohn theatre
as the fourth attraction presented
by the Michigan Repertory players
of the Play Production department
in the summer season. This smart
comedy by the Hungarian play-
wright will continue on the boards
through Saturday night.
This brilliant play was first seen
in America in 1913 under the title
of "Where Ignorance is Bliss." In
1924 the Theatre Guild opened its
season with this drama with the
present title and was received with
acclaim. Alfred Lunt and Lynn
Fontanne had the leading roles in
this production.
Allen Plays Guardsman
In the local offering, under the
direction of Valentine B. Windt, di-
rector of Play Production, Pauline
Bauersmith will appear as the act-
ress while Harry R. Allen will be
seen in the role of the actor, the
Guardsman. The other members of
the cast, which is one of the most
notable yet assembled for a single
presentation by Play Production,
are Mary Power as "Mama"-the
personal attendant of the popular
Viennese actress; Robert Wetzel as
the Critic-the best friend and se-
verest critic of the theatrical
couple; Evelyn Gregory as Liesl, the
maid; Charles F. Holden as the
Concierge; Harold Dorfman as the
Creditor; and Pauline Zoller as ah
Bauersmith Takes Part
Miss Bauersmith will be remem-
bered for her notable performance
in "Close Harmony." She comes to
Ann Arbor from Carnegie Tech and
has appeared in stock.
Allen is well known in campus
dramatic circles, his latest appear-
ance being as Johnnie in Barry's
"Holiday," the first offering of the
current season.
The student staff for this week's
production is composed of Arthur
Secord, stage manager; Helen Al-
lan, bookholder; Elva Pascoe and
Sylvia West, properties; Frederick
Howe, carpenter; Marie Kulewatz,
and Virginia McMullen, costuming.
Seats are now on sale at the box
office in the Women's League build-
ing. All tickets are 75 cents. There
will be no matinee performance
this week..
Detroit Attorney Will Discuss
Unemployment in Michigan.

Harry Slavin, attorney, Detroit,
chairman of Unemployment League
of Michigan, will discuss "Unem-
employment in Michigan and the
Fight for Insurance" in an open

A Review by William J. Gorman
Subtle and sensitive adaptation
of program to the most conspicuous
qualities in one's talent would seem
to be a first principle for all musi-
cians. Yet most frequently pro-
grams deny it-in the desire either
to cater to the imagined taste of
audiences or to emulate other suc-
cessful talents.
Last night's recital by Mrs. Okkel-
berg and Miss Cuyler, on the whole
a very entertaining one, was dis-
concerting in this respect. Mrs.
Okkelberg's single piano group last
night is a case in point. I should
call the choice of three transcrip-
tions for one group bad taste any-
way. But that aside, it was a futile
attempt at virtuosity and a denial
of her previously revealed talents
in other directions. The virtuoso
spirit is admirable-in a virtuoso.
The justification of a lot of Liszt on
a program comes in such a superb
rendition as the virulent Horowitz!
can give him. But I don't suppose!

Japan, and Deposition of

there was ever a woman with Horo-
witz's strength and courage and
absolute mastery of pianistic detail.
Indeed why should there be? The
solution would seem to be that of
Myra Hess who restricts herself to
"unpianistic" music-some of Rav-
el, Bach, and Scarlatti. There is a
fund of such music that goes un-
played. It would seem that a femi-
nine talent-that can never pre-
tend to the lion sort of approach
anyway-would play some of it.
Something similar was revealed
in Miss Cuyler's work too. Her Bee-
thoven Allegro was undoubtedly
very bad. It lacked the vigour, ex-
hilarating urgency, self-assertionf
and absolute technical certainty
necessary to any except the very
early Beethoven Allegros. She at-
tempted to play it with the ex-
quisite, impersonal r e f in e ment
proper to Mozart. Intolerable ryth-
mic lapses resulted. By tempera-
ment and technique she seemed in-
adequate to it. Perhaps she should
have played a Mozart Sonata.
In further corroboration of this, I
think it clear that the more virile
parts of the Boccherini Rondo (the
recurring theme itself) were played
very feebly. Her Couperin and
Schubert Encore were, on the con-
trary, the most acceptable.-

Doubt as to Who Would Petition
Becomes Game of Awaiting
Brucker Handicapped if Green
Allows Name on September
(By Associated Press)
LANSING, July 22. - The entry
ist for the September primary elec-
ion closed Tuesday afternoon in a
confused muddle. Draft movements
which have been simmering for
weeks sprung to life. As a, result,
the field of candidates in the con-
test for the Republican nomina-
tion for governor expanded like a
mushroom growth.
Those for whom petitions had
been filed when the time limit ex-
pired at 5 o'clock were:
Governor Fred W. Green, Alex J.
Groesbeck, former governor; Wil-
bur M. Brucker, attorney-general;
George W. Welsh, city manager of
Grand Rapids, and Judge Edward
J. Jeffries of the Detroit Record-
er's court.
Governor Is Quiet
While heretofore speculation has
been centered upon who would file,
the tangle now becomes a waiting
game to see who will withdraw. Pe-
titions for Governor Green carry-
ing about 30,000 names, were filed
by John L. A. Galster, of Petoskey,
Jesse A. Hendricks of Grand Rap-
ids, and James E. Degan, of Detroit.
The governor was not in the city.
During the day the executive shut-
tled from the George Goetz farm
near Holland to Ionia and then
back to Holland to spend the night.
Howard C. Lawrence, secretary to
the governor and chairman of the
Republican State Central commit-
tee, said he does not know whether
the governor will run. He added
that the governor will have no
statement to make at this time
and possibly not until he retuins to
Lansing in three or four days.
May Be Put On Ticket
If the governor maintains his si-
lence and neglects to withdraw
within the next few days his name
will go on the primary ballots.
Printing of the ballots prdbably
will start in some counties next
week. There is no time limit for
withdrawals, but once the ballots
are printed names cannot be strik-
en off. The governor has said sv-
eral times he will not be a candi-
date for a third term.
Many Important Institutions to
be Inspected by Students.
Important institutions in down-
town Detroit will be the objectives
of the fifth excursion of the Sum-
mer Session scheduled for Satur-
day, July 26. The party will leave
in privately-chartered busses, and
will visit the entire plant of the De-
troit News, the new Fisher build-
ing, the Detroit Institute of Arts,
the Public Library, and Belle Isle.

Th tneray il icludeacm
plete examination of WWJ, the
broadcasting station of the Detroit
News, a bird's eye view of the city
from the twenty-eighth story of the
Fisher building, and an inspection
of exhibitions of European, Greek,
and Asiatic art at the Fine Arts
Reservations should be made in
Room 9, University Hall, before Fri-
day, July 25, 6:00 p. m. Total ex-
penses are estimated to be $2.25.
